Let Your Home Be Your Heart

  • What I hope for my readers and for all keepers of the nest, is that they embrace their homes with their heart and all of the passion that it holds. I want them to know that they can decorate on a limited budget by seeing things in new ways; by rescuing the broken and transforming the ugly. I hope that they flaunt their favorite color and decorate their life with it. I hope that their homes feel like one giant hug that welcomes them each and every time they walk through their front door. More than anything I want everyone to have their own home-sweet-home dream come true! xo, Kim

Lisa/The Apron Queen

I've been lurking around your blog recently. I absolutely love all the vintage goodness here! So, I thought it was time to leave a comment, introduce myself & say Hello.

I also collect vintage items & I love sharing them with everyone! I have started hosting a weekly blog carnival called Vintage Thingies Thursdays. I think you'll really enjoy it. Come on over. I'll fix you a glass of iced tea & you can put your feet up!

Confessions of an Apron Queen:


This is our first day of sunshine here in a few days. And now I arrive here at your blog
to find all of this beautiful color!
This morning is getting off to a great start!
Beautiful photos, as always!



Thanks for sharing your lovely colors with us. I especially have a soft spot for all of the yellows. Yellow is just a feel good color.

You brightened my day. It is windy, cool and overcast there today.


Your blog is always full of such wonderful, colorful ideas! Thank you! :)

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio

Loved seeing your bright sunshiny colors this morning! It is gray and rainy here at Lavender Hill Studio...


Hi Kim,

I love your paintings, color just seems to leap from your lovely home :)



Once again you have tickled my fancy for the day!! Have a wonderful weekend.

LeAnn :)

Teresa Sheeley

I love your bright cheer-i-ness it always makes me smile; especially this morning waking up to snow!!!



Such gorgeous colors! We still have colors in the winter-blahs-drab palette around here! lol


Looks like Kim has been visiting the Goodwill or Vintage again. I love the nnpkins/paintings/chany/cookbook. You have such good taste and Daisy Cottage just sparkles. You have 80+degree weather today and I want some of it. LOL



Good Morning have a very nice
weekend, love all the color and
your blog


Great Pics.

I am so ready for some color around here. I think the grass maybe getting greener.

Come On Spring!

Bobbi Jo Nichols

I agree with all the above. What lovely colors and things you share with us. Love all the yellow it just puts a smile on my face. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I have always been a "yellow" person. I guess it reminds me of sunshine. And red. Red and yellow is me. My oldest daughter and I were talking on the phone one day about decorating. And I said I thought that now that she's 33 and a mother, I felt we'd sort of adopted the same decor themes somewhat. Her response was: "But don't you still hang the quilts you made and use a lot of yellow?" She said yellow like it was a dirty word. And I laughed. "Yes," I said. "But open your current Pottery Barn catalog and you'll see yellow is now in." (She adores Pottery Barn). Yellow was never "out" with me.


It's the simple things in life sometimes that bring the most pleasure. Great photos!



So pretty! I especially love those paintings! Fabulous!

Sharon K

I love all your lovely yellow and orange colors. When I am through with my new beddroom look of red, black and white I will post on my blog. As I have said before your pictures and decoration are an insperation to all that see them. Huge and rainbows sent your way Kim.....

Alison Gibbs

Oh Kim what gorgeous finds. My favourite would have to be the orange candleabra
Have a great weekend


AWE some color to make my day even brighter. Great photo's Kim. Happy weekend.


COLOR?? WOW!!! Whenever I need a little "Sunshine Cheer" I go to DAISY COTTAGE.
I hit a couple yard sales this AM and acquired a bit of color myself.
Love your "finds"

Give Maggie a hug for me... :)


And....Oh, Kim??
I will be in your area from North Georgia in about 10 days....
Soooo looking forward to a sunshiney 11 days.



Hi Kim,
I haven't posted comments in awhile...but I must tell you that your blog brings such a needed smile to my face. Bless you ~ Rosemary


I'm all about color! Enjoyed your treasures today!


A much needed sunny display. Home again and hoping to catch up with you soon. Thanks for cheering me up!

It is all so beautiful. Just like you Kim. Love,Rachel


Your photos are so vivid and Beautiful!

Thats the first thing people say when they walk into my house - "its so colourful". I don't think I could live with neutrals exclusively, but I would like to do one room in earthy colours just for something different!

Mary Issabella

As always wonderful!!!


Love all of the pretty color Kim!


Hi Kim,
The yellow's great, but I have to say I have fallen in love with that little bit of coral color that is peeking out in the top photo... Not orange, not pink, I guess it is coral, but lighter? I love everything you choose for Daisy Cottage!
Couldn't let a Sunday go by without visiting (even though it's getting quite late in California!).


Gorgeous!! I seem to be especially addicted to orange these days - LOVE the orange chandelier. :)


chez tine

je viens de chez Allsorts et je suis enchantée par ma visite sur ton blog

merci merci mercie
Tine, de Paris

Rachel Going

Have a happy week Kim, Dear.


Orange candalabra? Juicy! I love it!


Hi there,
i just had to write and tell you that I got "your" magazine over the weekend!! You did a great job with your story...lots of pretty to look at there! I was also tickled to see the article about Penny...I found her through your blog last fall and had her design a birdhouse for DH's valentine gift. We both love her work!!
Thanks for the reference to Penny, for a wonderful blog that I enjoy checking every day, and for being such a great writer!!!

Susan Tuttle

Your Beautiful Hearts For Jack

Thank You Dear Sis!

Thank you Fifi!

  • "It's people like yourself that make everything beautiful and worthwhile." ~ Fifi

Thank You Ida!

  • Kim I just wanted to thank you again for allowing us into your sweet home! I absolutely loved being there and looking around with you. Your hospitality and sweet spirit make the home even more beautiful! Thanks for reminding me that one day I too will have my "dream come true!" ~ Ida - MOPS Member

Thank You Jane!

  • "I just discovered your blog and am blown away with the comfortable, almost nostalgic feel of it...almost like finding a long-lost friend after many years apart...somehow familiar, but all so exciting and new." ~ Jane

Thank You Dena!

  • "Kim, I love your blog. I so appreciate you sharing every day. I miss you when you're gone. Losing my dear sweet baby boy in Iraq has made me treasure life and those so dear to me. Reading your blog is such therapy for me. You have made me treasure the finer things in life that I use to overlook. Birds singing, flowers blooming, my home and all of the treasures within it. I'm not sure that I ever looked at a teacup or saucer and saw such detail and beauty in it." ~ Dena

Thank You Grace!

  • "I would like to let you know what a joy it is to wake up each morning and read your delightful blog. I always feel as if you are speaking directly to me. Since I was diagnosed with an immune disease a year ago I wanted only to read positive and very inspiring blogs and your blog was the first I found. I think maybe the good Lord meant for me to find your blog and since then it has been nothing but smiles all around. I have tried very hard to stay positive about this disease and very up beat. I know that there is no cure and I have accepted this, but reading things with a positive message and filled with so much love helps. This is where you come in and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart and to let you know how very much you and Miss Maggie are loved." ~ Grace

Thank You Francesca!

  • "Oh my! I have just stepped into heaven. A nostalgic, magic, getaway place where folk love one another and life is sweet. Kim, you will probably never know just how many hearts you have touched with your site. " ~ Francesca

Thank You Kathy!

  • "I visited my friends with their tasteful beige homes and sometimes questioned if there was anyone else in this world who loved the things I did. Then I found Daisy Cottage and a whole community of other women who shop the side of the road, paint their furniture fun colors, and aren't afraid to fill their homes with touches of whimsy and fun. What a relief! We aren't alone! I'm not alone. Thanks for all your inspiration and for confidently sharing your home and the idea that we can have fun with our decorating. I never get tired of visiting here Kim." ~ Kathy

Thank you Rue!

  • "That hankie is like you and your blog Kim. In the middle of all of the other beautiful hankies, it's the one that stands out and makes you feel at home." ~ Rue

Thank You Jeanette!

  • "Sigh.... between your music, red and yellow mellow feeling and wonderful writing I just feel so calm. What would I do without you in the morning with my cup of coffee." ~ Jeanette

Thank You Lenna!

  • "My eyes have been opened to a world I never knew existed. Such vibrant creativity, such caring community: it literally takes my breath away. After so much loneliness and isolation it is overwhelming to me that such a world even exists. In time I hope to be able to fill my garden of life with lovely, loving friends instead of the weeds of loneliness. Until that time lace tablecloths will come out of storage, music and lovely scents will fill the air of this home. And I shall visit the Daisy Cottage when I feel despair raise its dark, obscuring head, for I know from experience, that it is ever lurking behind that next bout of pain and weakness. Your kind and generous response has strengthened my resolve, you have helped me more than you will ever know, my new-found friend." ~ Lenna

Thank You Rose!

  • "What I love best about Daisy Cottage is Kim. I love the way you appreciate every good thing in life and embrace joy in every moment." ~ Rose

Thank You Lisa!

  • "Here's how I can best describe into words how your blog made me feel. You know when you wake up in the morning and there's an early morning thunderstorm and every room in your house is as dark as night? Then, the rain and thunder stop and the sun comes shining through all the windows and you just know it's going to be a beautiful, sunshine day? Well, that's how finding Dear Daisy Cottage made me feel. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Kim. You blessed my day and may God do the same for you." ~ Lisa B.

Thank you Pamela!

  • "I am so touched by your words and photographs. Whether in happy or sad times, you inspire my heart and soul. We all need each other's light and you offer us that dose of sunshine." ~ Pamela

Thank you Joy!

  • "Your blog has helped me start to see the beauty in life again." ~ Joy

Thank You Anne!

  • "Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have been "lurking" but had to share with you how much you have helped me embrace the fun of decorating. I came to your blog looking for pictures to inspire me as I redecorate my house with cottage style. Today I was so tangled up in doing it "right" that it was really depressing me. I visited your blog again for some fresh ideas and came away realizing that there is no "right." Just me being me and enjoying my home! I am laying here in bed with tears in my eyes - tears of happiness that it is okay to be me and let that shine through in my house and what I wear and what I make with my hands. You are God's gift to me today and I thank Him and you." ~ Anne

Thank You Tracy!

  • "Your words and thoughts of encouragement help me see myself with value. You are a blessing. Thank you." ~ Tracy

Thank you Karen!

  • "Your humble spirit has not changed through your many posts here in Blogland. You have been blessed with a special gift and I am very thankful you share it with us." ~ Karen

Thank You Betty Jo!

  • "You truly inspire me to do whatever I can in my own little nest. I've always been an artistic dreamer, but you've enlarged my dreams with your way of seeing." ~ Betty Jo
